Cinco de Mayo Salsa

Here to spice up your Cinco de Mayo is Chef Mike from Tri Delta Texas A&M. He impresses his house and me with his so simple yet so impressive salsa recipe that's  perfect for this day. It's time to ditch the store-bought stuff. Let's prepare for this fun day in a festive way. If you need a little push to get creative and active in the kitchen (like me), take note of these simplified steps that will have you salsa-ing around the kitchen.

This does not involve heavy machinery, dicing, cooking over a flame and is limited reading.


Step 1.
Put tomatoes on tray.
Cut the garlic & onions in half.
Combine garlic, onions, walnuts & jalapenos with with tomatoes.
Drizzle olive oil on tomatoes.
Roast tomatoes for 30-40 minutes in 350 degrees.
Turn on "La Bamba" by Ritchie Valens.
Dance around your kitchen.

After 30-40 minutes, the tomatoes should look like this:

Step 2:
Move all items on tray to a bowl, container, etc. to be mixed

Step 3:
Mix. Chef Mike uses a hand blender. You can also use a food processor.

Muy facil

Step 4: DONE!
Eat with chips or put on tacos. However you enjoy your salsa, make sure to be festive and enjoy this Cindo de Mayo with your sisters & brothers.
